200-Unit College Football Game Of Year Wins Today By 5-6 Touchdowns...
Won This Contest Last Year With 200-Unit Play On Utah 41-10 Over UCLA
By Kelso Sturgeon
In addition to my biggest college bet of the season, I also am offering a 50-unit side/total parlay on tonight's Southeastern Conference showdown that finds #6 LSU (5-0) hosting #7 Florida (6-0). In the NFL, I am going for another 50-unit NFL Game of the Week winner (last week I scored with the Minnesota Vikings (-5.5) over the New York Giants, 28-10) and my fourth straight winning 50-unit 2-team parlay.
But back to the 200-Unit College Game of the Year. There is little more important to me than winning my college and NFL games of the year, because of my respect and appreciation for clients whose confidence I have earned and who look forward to winning one of the biggest bets of the football season And, yes, I am confident the team will win in blowout fashion.
Picking a team to win a game of the year is a complicated process in which I consider every possible element - positive and negative - that could impact the outcome. First, the team must be in a power vs. weakness situation and in every respect must completely outclass its opponent. For instance, the team I intend to win with is better than its record and is meeting a dramatically inferior team that has no offense and no defense.
MANY BIG QUESTIONS IN THE NFL, AND HERE ARE A FEW
- Locker room chatter from Denver indicates there is a great amount of negative conversation about how new head coach Vic Fangio is running the show, and most of all his game plans. The talk continued after the Broncos (1-4) won their first game last week, beating the Chargers, 20-13, in Los Angeles as 17-point underdogs. This is serious stuff and may continue to impact the team's play because among the disenchanted are several of the Broncos best players. Denver is a 2-point home favorite over the Tennessee Titans (2-3) Sunday.
- The Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4) intend to start undrafted rookie quarterback Devlin Hodges at the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday. Hodges, from I-AA Samford University, won the prestigious Walter Payton Award last season as the FCS Player of the Year. While at Samford, he broke Steve McNair's all-time FCS passing record, throwing for 14,584 yards and 111 touchdowns. He was cut by Pittsburgh in late August, was resigned to the practice squad when Ben Roethlisberger was lost for the season with an elbow injury and has worked his way right up the depth chart. He made his NFL debut last week, replacing Mason Rudolph who was injured during the Ravens game and completed 7-of-9 passes for 68 yards and running once for 20 yards.
- The San Francisco 49ers (4-0) are one of two undefeated NFL teams (New England is the other) and are showing signs of taking over the NFC West from the Rams (3-2) whom they meet Sunday in Los Angeles as 3-point underdogs. The Rams opened the season 3-0 but come into this game riding a two-game losing streak, 55-40 at home to Tampa Bay and 30-29 at Seattle. While the 49ers have multiple injuries on offense and will be without three starters - (FB Kyle Juszczyk (knee), right tackle Mike McGlinchey (knee) and left tackle Joe Staley (leg), Rams star running back Todd Gurley (thigh contusion) may also miss the game. One thing for certain, the 49ers have become a very physical and aggressive team and will come to play. They crushed Cleveland, 31-3, last week and intimidated the Browns from the get-go.
- It's time for the Cleveland Browns (2-3) to stop living off their preseason hype and get with it. It would also help their cause if second year QB Baker Mayfield would shut up and just play ball. His trash talk about opponents only fire them up. The talent is there for the Browns to be a top team, but their inconsistency makes them suspect. For instance, two weeks ago they won at Baltimore, 40-25, as 8.5-point underdogs, and last week were buried at San Francisco, 31-3, as 5-point underdogs. Cleveland is a team that needs to can its collective arrogance and just play football. The Browns are 2-point home underdogs to a lackluster Seattle (4-1) team.
- The Dallas Cowboys (3-2) hope to snap a 2-game losing streak at the winless New York Jets (0-4) and are solid 7-point favorites to do just that. Only thing I cannot figure out - why just 7? Starting Jets QB Sam Darnold is expected to return for this one and he will be charged with the responsibility of charging up and offense that averages just 179.5 yards of offense and 9.8 points per fame. Figures like that will get you beat at Miami.
50-UNIT NFL GAME OF WEEK CRUSHES BOOKIES
AND GOING FOR MY 4TH CONSECUTIVE WINNING NFL PARLAY
I won my 50-unit NFL Game of the week last Sunday as the Minnesota Vikings (-5.5) beat the New York Giants, 28-10, in a game that was never as close as the final score. It's right back with another 50-unit bet today and I am looking for a dominating one-sided win. My winning game of the week team is in the right place at the right time and is primed to play its best game of the season.
Football parlays are also a great way to make a major score if one can find at least two qualifying teams, just as I have done for the past three weeks. That means I am a perfect 9-0 in that time frame and am going for my fourth straight Sunday with two teams that grade out with a 90% chance to win. In my world, it seldom gets better than this and I am confident I will again go 3-0. It will be 20 units on each winner and 10 units on the parlay and you can win it all for just $25, charged to your credit card or to Pay Pal. Call 1-800-755-2255
Saturday's College Best Bet
#5 Oklahoma Sooners (5-0) -10.5 by 17 over #11 Texas Longhorns (4-1)
The line is mysteriously high for a heated rivalry game being played for the 115th time. That alone makes me nervous but it also tells me bookmakers are begging for bettors to support Texas and, when they do that, the message is loud and clear - they are loaded with smart wiseguy money on the Sooners and simply want bettors to think the big number gives the Longhorns the edge. Not quite. The game will be played on a neutral field at the Cotton Bowl, with one side of the field reserved for Texas fans, the other for the Sooner faithful The game begins at 12:00 Noon EDT and will be televised nationally on FOX.
Sunday's NFL Best Bet
LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (2-3) -6.5 by 14 over Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4)
The Los Angeles Chargers have fallen far short of preseason expectations and have an opportunity to get things rolling the right direction against a Pittsburgh Steelers team that most likely will be starting an undrafted rookie at quarterback. This is not a knock of young Devlin Hodges (1-AA Samford University), who I think will develop into an outstanding NFL signal caller, but...The Chargers are hungry, have had excellent practices this week and have to talent to keep the heat on, and prevail. (Home Team In CAPS)
